50267-01 - Seminar: Current Topics in Social Science Based on Sustainability Research 3 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende Annika Sohre (annika.sohre@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Sustainability research in the social sciences is a rapidly developing field that covers a broad range of debates within and across various disciplines and problem areas. This poses a huge challenge to keep track of “what is going on?”, to filter interesting topics and cope with the complexity of different contributions. Furthermore, there is a growing demand for social scientists to improve science communication, that is, condensing scientific results to comprehensible information, e.g. in the state-of-the-art section of a master thesis.
In a lab setting, the students will systematically identify and engage with a current topic of social science-based sustainability research based on the method of systematic literature reviews. The students:
- search and select current topics, and they further elaborate these topics in literature reviews;
- discuss empirical, theoretical, methodological and practical issues concerning current topics;
- present and discuss the developed topics orally and in written form.
Lernziele By the end of the semester the participants will have acquired competencies and skills necessary to disclose current topics of social science based sustainability research. Specifically, they will know how to set up systematic search strategies to find and delimitate relevant and current topics; how to elaborate the state of discussion in a given field; and how to specify knowledge gaps. Furthermore, they will learn how to summarize debates about current sustainability issues.
